PrestaShop Order Status

Openpay uses custom order status which will be automatically created after installing the module.

Openpay pending status

Customer completes the Openpay form and will be redirected to PrestaShop. If all is fine then the response status is LODGED, order will be placed with order status.

Next Step is to capture the order. If there will be some connection problems or capture will be failed then status will not be changed and order stay in Openpay pending status.

Openpay rejected status

If capture was successful and the order status from Openpay response is not approved then order status will be changed to Openpay rejected status.

Openpay approved status

If capture was successful and order status from Openpay response is approved then order status will be changed to Openpay approved status and can be refunded. Every 30 minutes a job runs and checks the order that are in status Openpay pending status. If returned Openpay order status is Approved and Openpay plan status is Active then order status will be changed to Openpay approved status.

Openpay refunded status

All Orders with status Openpay approved status can be partial and full refunded. If whole amount was refunded then order will be changed to Openpay refunded status.
